The DST biennial cohort building retreat took place in April 2018 at Gregynog Hall. Activities included a team building workshop with Michele Underwood, (Researcher Development Manager, University of Warwick), canoeing on Lake Vyrnwy (Bethania Adventure) and Innovation to Impact, a workshop run by Warwick Ventures. Evening activities included a pub quiz courtesy of Jenny and Martin (cohort 4) and Molecules with Silly or Unusual Names (Prof. Paul May, University of Bristol).
On Saturday 10th March, Guy (DST CDT, Warwick) joined the Oxford CDT students for a reprise of our highly successful stall at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History Super Science Saturday. The theme of the day was ‘People and Planet’. The ‘people’ proved too much for our beloved magnetometer demo; and the ‘planet’ will hopefully benefit from an increased number of people enjoying and understanding science. People were impressed and surprised by the extreme properties of this crazy crystalline product of the planet. We are honoured to be involved in this series of events a second time, and we really appreciate the warmth shown towards us by the museum staff. Our reputation apparently preceded us, evident from the moment our stall was opened, and our popularity melted the competition.
